a a president to lead. all they have to do is come up with and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. bill: what about that? democratic congressman adam schiff out of california is on the appropriations committee. welcome to "america's newsroom.". what do you think about the speaker? he is putting all this on the president and democrats in the senate. time for them to step up. >> well a couple things. this is the same speaker that said he got 98% of what he wanted in the whole deal that set up the sequester. but we're getting a very mixed message. we're getting a message, the problem we want the other house to go first. or the problem we want the president to propose something. the president has proposed something. i don't think the america people really care about who's idea this originally was or who got 98% of the what. they want the economy to --. bill: sequester in my own state. that will --. bill: let me get that in a a moment. i don't think anybody is arguing that. you call this a man-made crisis. why wait until friday to sit down and tal
on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
the blame on harry reid. house had a budget, maybe good or but the senator never let it be brought to the floor so give and take negotiations. however, where i casted the blame back at president obama he submitted the budget is why didn't he pick up the phone and tell his party leader, harry reid, get a budget so we can at least have a conversation. >> listen, these are such important issues. i hate these back room deals. we voted on the fiscal cliff at 1:40 in the morning on new year's day. >> greta: who read it? >> i prevented 99% of americans from getting an income tax increase and money flowing out of the private sector to the inefficient government sector. i knew the basic thrust of doing business. we should have regular order which would be the house passes a budget, senate passes a budget and you reconcile that and that is the framework for the committee work. >> like the president was supposed to submit a budget. there is no regard for deadline. if the rest of us in america ignored deadlines. if i showed up at 10:15, how long would i keep my job. >> america is bankrupt. onl
such a liability for the democrats that harry reid and other democrats throw him overboard, then chris cities -- chris cities gets to name replacement. the other part of this is as you point out that if the fbi can go up the food chain because the part that they are looking at is influence pedaling, allegations of corruption that perhaps senator menendez his official office to work with his donor to pass out some business favors, perhaps, to this dozier. these are the allegations, this is what is out there. if they cannot just get to menendez but perhaps to a broader net of even bigger fish like the clintons who have been known to work with this donor, then i think the democrats have a wider scandal on their hands. >> bill: i think there is scandal here. >> guilt by association. >> bill: at this point, correct, there is no hard evans to show anything. as dr. crowley pointed out. >> that's what i have to call her. >> bill: you don't get a warrant or don't have fbi resources on a fishing expedition. >> innocent until proven guilty. wouldn't talk to the fbi and men then des who won by 19 points.
like breitbart and the daily caller. this is harry reid being questioned about this initially doing the whole look at the source thing and now backing off and saying this is what fbi investigations are all about and to the point of harry reid initially coming out and menendez saying this is the right wing blogospea osphere. i don't think that is a good thing to tell the breitbart people who took down anthony weiner. there is plenty of evidence. >> not evidence. >> sean: coming up next. >> you are not a woman stuck in her house having to defend her children, not able to leave her child. not able to go seek safety. on the phone with 911 and she he cannot get the police there fast enough to protect her child. >> gun rights activist gail trotter's powerful testimony captured it the attention of law makers on capitol hill. tonight she is here to explain why women across the country should be paying close attention to the president's assault on your second amendment rights. log on to hannity live and follow the live show, share you thoughts on the program. just go to hannity live.fox news
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean? [mooing] >>brian: steve was recruited off the future farmers of america's rosters. >>steve: i was back in the day. >>gretchen: are you from kansas? >>steve: yes, i'm from kansas. >>alisyn: i didn't know you are on some sort of farmer's bulletin board. >>brian: then you married kathy, a city girl and brought her to the cou
. nonetheless, harry reid, given the fact that we're facing that looming deadline on friday, he says the republicans can fix it all if they do the one thing they absolutely won't do, which makes this impossible, and that is jack up taxes. >> those cuts will go forward. they are all cuts. i think we need some revenue to take the pressure off everybody. the american people agree with me. until there's some agreement on revenue, i believe we should go ahead with the sequester. >>gretchen: it's interesting because the president talks about compromise. i know time goes by fast. but the republicans just did compromise and they did raise taxes. in fact, everyone's taxes went up because you're all paying social security again now. the tax-free holiday is gone. it's amazing to me that this messaging is still out there, that this is all about taxes. by the way, senator reid, americans don't agree with you totally. here's a rasmussen poll. the best way to slash the deficit, reduce taxes alone, only 6%. reduce by cutting spending: 45%. a combination, more spending cuts than tax hikes: 36%. >>st
of questions about whether democratic legislators up to and including harry reid would support what the president wants to do when t comes to gun control. >> that is a good question, jon. in the political calculus that is pretty simple. you have democrats that could be embarrassed if forced take a vote on guns. like assault weapons ban, et cetera. those are in conservative states or in the house in conservative districts may have been carried by mitt romney and they're holding on by a thread. we're talking about whether or not senate majority leader harry reid is willing to put those democrats at risk and also then put at risk control of the senate because republicans have fewer people who were running, who will be running in 14 and fewer people who are at risk. though again, the dynamic is very difficult for the democrats and here's a vote that would expose them to great political costs. jon: let's take, let's take another listen at one of the things the president said last night. >> and i know you want these job-creating projects in your district. i've seen all those ribbon cuttin
over this country. >> the democratic senate majority leader harry reid says he supports the second amendment as well as universal background checks but he is not going to let the nra get in his way just because they resist it doesn't mean. we have special interest groups that come in and complain about things we don't listen to them -- we will listen to them and make the right decision. >> reid says the senate might soon debate assault weapons ban. something congressman woman gabriel giffords husband argued for today. >> i spent 2 a 5 years in the military. i know the value of having an assault weapon. it's to kill a lot of people very quickly. i think they are way too readily available. i think in time we will be able to address those issues. >> wayne lappier from the nra said today forcing existing laws would go a long way in reducing gun violence so would rounding up gangs in places like chicago. harris? >> peter, thank you. a man on vacation hand gliding in florida when something went very wrong. it's our top story as we go across america. florida. police say the man from illin
by budget cuts and instead reach out to harry reid who did not get a call from the president to push him to pass one or two house republican plans to stop the sequester. cantor declaring, "house republicans have acted and time for the democrats to join us." time to get out the campaign trail and get to work. show us what spending reductions you prefer and let's find common ground. in the tit-for-tat fight, carney brought out charts on the president's plan to cut spending and turn it to republicans. >> there will be jobs on the line if the sequester takes place and the president will as he continues to do call on the republicans in congress to agree to avoid sequester. it is a wholly unnecessary uninflicted would on the economy if it were to take place. >> there were others like howard dean suggesting the president should let the sequester happen. to slice the pentagon's budget. dean telling the huffington post i'm in favor of the sequester. it's tough on things i care about a lot but the fact of the matter is you are not going to get another chance to cut the defense budget in the way it
, the president was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and address our problems. the house acted twice. we shouldn't have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> good afternoon, we heard the president say last week that he would he was going to be forced, because of sequestration, to let criminals loose on the street if he didn't get another tax hike. today we hear discussions from the secretary of homeland security we're going to have have to sacrifice homeland security efforts if we don't get another tax hike. this is a false choice and the president has been engaging in a rhetoric of false choice for weeks. as the spaker just indicated, we in the house have acted. there's a smarter, better way to go about trying to achieve the reductions in spending so we can get it controlled over the spending. and in the house, we even included measures that the president has proposed in his own budget. but yet the president won't support even his own measures unless there's a tax increase. so the president really ought to stop campaigning and come back to the table and work
's book saying we have an idea for a trigger and harry reid quoted saying -- >> and you can hang all you want on this. >> bret: no, i'm just quoting the book. >> was to include revenue in that. shockingly balance was imposed by the republicans at the time. that is why we have the situation we have now. both sides agreed when the republicans voted overwhelmingly for it, as i will remind you that the sequester was designed to be terrible policy that shouldn't come to pass. what we hear from the republicans now unfortunately again, it will would be better to have tens of thousands of people laid off for fu furlough. thousands of kids thrown off of head start if the sequester kicks in than to ask corporate jet owners to give up their tax brack. or to ask oil and gas companies who have been making record profits and who are, you know, again and again, year after year to give us the taxpayers subsidiaries. that is not good economic policy. it doesn't make sense. american people don't support it. >> bret: jay, as always, thank you for coming on. i appreciate the patience in the breaking news to
is a prime example in places like new york, new jersey, california. gun control is popular. but harry reid also has democratic members from places like west virgina, arkansas, louisiana, and alaska where gun control can be dirty words. here is senator reid speaking recently about his conversation with california's dianne feinstein about an assault weapons ban. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one. she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i will take a look at that. as i have indicated to you folks, we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns and i think everyone will be well-sized to read the legislation before they determine how they're to vote for it. >> reporter: so a tricky act ahead for senator reid as he balances risking his members and their re-election bids in 2014 and 2016 and going ahead with the president's agenda. bottom line, he has some serious work ahead and it will be interesting to see what comes out from the president's pep talk with members today. jenna? jenna: i know you read all the legislation by the way before an
to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some
to break out that one either, are we, mike? >> reporter: no but harry reid is boxer so you never know. jon: that is interesting. mike emanuel on capitol hill. jenna. jenna: there is a little name-calling as we've been covering, what was it weak sauce from harry reid and john boehner using other colorful language so. when they get together --. jon: get off of its mule? jenna: well-put, jon. just for our younger viewers. we'll continue to follow what is going on with sequestration. as mike was just mentioning, time is really ticking by. you have billions of spending cuts set to go into effect tomorrow. there will be some of that happening right away but some of it delayed. the sequester deadline is hours away though today. what to expect now that we're in the final county down. >>> also new testimony from the woman who claims she brutally killed her boyfriend in self-defense. the latest from the jodi arias murder trial next. searing for a bank designed for investors like you? tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 schwab bank was built with all e value and convenience tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 investors want. tdd#
that a cabinet secretary needed 60 votes and both of those bush nominees facing harry reid and democrats and environmental agency head. both had to meet 60 vote threshold. now it has happened to hagel. the third time in ten years. so it's not unprecedented. my question to you, why rush it? >> because the department of defense is responsible for our military. we are currently in conflict right now. i think this is something that has to deal with national security. you really need to get serious and get to work here. we can't be talking about things that are not relevant. they are asking for information about benghazi and chuck hagel had nothing to do with benghazi. if you wanted questions about that you need to talk on other people. >> heather: they got one of those questions answered, that is whether or not president obama himself personally called libyan officials on the night of september 11th but the respect on hagel to get a simple answer which we now know the answer was no. brad? >> you are absolutely right. we had some leverage over the white house and hagel was used at that levera
to the left that they can't-- all right i've got to go. >> the bills have been passed and harry reid won't bring them up. if you want to compromise get in the game and-- >> we've had that debate and the two parties see it very differently. in any event, kind of depressing, isn't it? and thanks for being here, though. thanks for being here. and maybe this will cheer you up, can you sue your parents for not loving you enough? we'll investigate that next. >> kelly's court is back in session. a 32-year-old man accusing his parents not loving him enough as a child so he's suing them for a hefty allowance. bernard bay is homeless and yet an aspiring record mogul. he blames his parents for his situation and saying they weren't loving or nurturing at all when he was a child and now he's asking a judge to force him to pay up claiming $200,000 should set things right. his mother says, bernard, get a job. adding that she has had a lifetime of old bernard and she's done. can you really sue for this? jonna spilbor is a former prosecutor and now defense attorney and julia is a former prosecutor and n
, chris, something that stood out to me is the backbone of harry reid. had he perhaps more of a backbone during these filibuster negotiations, and filibuster reform, perhaps he wouldn't be sitting here having this discussion anyway, and some of the fault, maybe a large portion of the fault lay with harry reid for us even having this discussion this morning? >> well, in fairness, look, both sides have threatened to do something about the filibuster and both sides are reluctant to do it, because quite frankly, they know the once that were in the majority now know at some point they'll be in the minority and vice versa and you know, there is some deference made to some rules of the senate and one of the things they all say if we'd stop the filibuster we'd become just like the house and i promise you on in congress on capitol hill that's not a compliment. >> is there any merit to what democrats are saying about the g.o.p. blocking this and putting the country at risk 'cause it's such an important security post? >> no, i mean, for one thing, the senate democrats said well, we're not going to
of the people who will be at the meeting tomorrow. john boehner speaker of the house. harry reid senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi, of course. what is the point of this meeting tomorrow? it is the deadline. what are they going to get done in this meeting. some people are saying it could be a photo opportunity to once again -- the president is very good at messaging -- to put out to the american people. i tried, i had a meeting with these top-level meeting and nothing came of it. >>brian: i have a hunch. john boehner is on the record saying this is going to be a listening meeting for me. i think the president will say there is your delay for two months. here's an idea of going forward for the next two months. is delay all these cuts from taking place. therefore, if you don't accept this piece of paper, you are truly the bad guys. >>steve: "the washington post" says today that what the president is going to ask republicans, he's going to ask them what one tax break would you give up? just give up one thing. of course the white house has made that clear that they want more re
to vote for it. harry reid has not had the senate majority pass a budget in the last four years. the senate, the last time the senate passed a budget was actually before the ipad had been invented. so you talk about how far ago that's been. families have to balance their budgets. most states like my home state of wyoming, we balance our budget every year. i believe we need a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. the president continues to oppose those sorts of things. jon: well, the president has said he doesn't think the federal government has a spending problem. 83% of americans disagree with him according to our latest fox news poll. they say they think government does spend too much money. why the disconnect? >> well, and nancy pelosi said the same thing this weekend on one of the talk shows. americans know the problem in this country is that we spend too much, not that we're taxed too little. and that's where the republicans and i are specifically focusing our attention on trying to get the spending under control which is what american families have been doing, wha
proposed it to harry reid and off it went. in the end all the fingerprints of washington are on this deal in the end. you're saying in fact our navy is too pau small, you want a bigger one, buy bigger, cheaper, faster ships. this is a wake up call for the defense department. how do they learn from this. ralph? >> well, i hope they feel some real pain. i don't want our troops to feel pain. i don't want any honest federal worker to be furniture load. but my god, bill, the waste in the defense budget is enormous, and there is no lemon law when contractors sell us junk. generals and admirals don't say boo about weapons that don't work because they get out and go to work for the defense industry for lucrative salaries, and congress, again, they'll vote to preserve 20 bad jobs in their home district even if it cost us 20 troops. you're absolutely right, everybody's fingerprint is on it and my line to the republican is if sequestration is so bad, why do you guys vote for it? why do you have the guts to stand up back then? i say a playing on bot plague on both their houses stphao. bill: the milit
. >> harry reid, who are you wearing? >>gretchen: hate to see it, it might get the younger ones actually. watch the state of the union. >>brian: about 40 million expected to watch. right to your headlines, president obama planning to bypass congress. he's set to issue a series of executive orders tomorrow, what companies must do to protect computers from cyber attacks. he's got more executive orders coming. >>gretchen: a warning about something that might be in your freezer. lean cuisine recalling mushroom ralph i don't seely saying -- mushroom ravioli saying they may contain pieces of glass. these packages were made in november they have 2012. >>steve: extreme weather raining on the parade. new orleans gearing up for a soggy mardi gras. you're taking a live look at the french quarter. it's supposed to dry up a little later on. today mardi gras, fat tuesday, grand finale of a week-long celebration -- >>brian: i was there. >>steve: that's right. tomorrow is ash wednesday. this year's event is expected to generate $300 million for the big easy. >> grandma busted for selling pot. police arr
and propose legislation, but harry reid hasn't even passed a budget. >> zerlina i want to bring this up too. a graphic in january the unemployment rate ticked up up to 7.9%. how long is it going to take for americans really to start feeling fed up with all of this especially when they are starting to see less money in their paychecks because of this payroll tax. >> that is a real concern, right? so americans are continuing to feel the pain of the economic recovery being very slow. the bottom line is the bureau of economic analysis said the shrinking economy is a cause by a reduction in government spending. so the president is drying to say look we have to get stimulus into the economy. we need to get everyone back to work. that is caused by more spending not less spending. >> the democrats have proposed you cannot spend your way into prosperity. nor you can't tax people into prosperity. what you need to do is let the free markets take control. and basically in washington, d.c., we have bigger government. the president appointed 32 czars. what are those czars doing? >> czars is just a shorte
